Product Builder

The Product Builder is a powerful design solution for the production of parametric constructions with extruded profiles like fire doors, sun protection, balustrades, conservatories. It is a solution for manufacturers that do not use calculation or drawing software, allowing constructions with profiles to be made as parametric models based on scripts. The models allow the manufacturer to generate machine data, barcode labels, DXF drawings, numerous reports and, if necessary, give feedback to the manufacturers ERP system. From Product Builder the production lists are sent straight to the machine work floor enabling focus on the following tasks.

Using extremely powerful scripting models and algorithms, this software provides endless possibilities when it comes to executing design ideas and turning them into drawings and production lists.

Industries that produce large numbers of similar but customized products can benefit from using our Product Builder, though the ease of implementation and execution is a great tool for manufacturers of any size.

UNILINK Platform

UNILINK is an independent automation platform for production on CNC machines in the industry for aluminum, steel and PVC profiles used for doors and windows or any other profile industry.

Our platform includes a machine independent, vector based, 3D macro programming interface designed to be user-friendly, fast and capable of managing huge macro libraries.

There is a list editor to view and edit your production data. The UNILINK platform can import data from any construction software and export to any brand CNC profile milling and cutting machine. 

The software contains functionalities like tool assignment, anti-collision and bar optimization. The user creates all complex production lists with a maximum of automation, determining from the office if a machine is capable of running a job without collisions and receiving a visual report of the tool assignment before starting the machine. The machine operator only handles the profiles, allowing the machine to work continuously.

Additionally, we offer a powerful optimization module that ensures a minimal use of material. Any excess can be easily integrated in the following optimization. The same goes for damaged profiles; for example, damaged spots on bars can be detected and cut out by the optimizer.

UNILINK provides partners a comprehensive toolbox for managing tasks within their machinery, even multiple brands of machines, different construction software or different companies. We will create the right solution and grow together as loyal partners in the art of automation.

A+W Smart Companion for Fenestration Manufacturing

Barcode scanners are an indispensable tool for window and door manufacturers. Smartphones and smart devices are playing an increasingly important role, when equipped with the A+W Smart Companion App for the A+W Cantor software solution. Smartphone cameras allow barcodes to be scanned directly and to display additional information. The app supports materials management and requests, dynamic forms (the customer customizes their own scenarios in Production), and increases digitalization. The intuitive user interface requires no training, which helps save time and money.

A+W Smart Companion for A+W Cantor is currently available for Production and Stock.

In the dispatch area of production, the app can book finished elements and accessories onto racks while also assigning them to an area. This allows several elements to be scanned simultaneously in so-called continuous mode (camera mode).

As a mobile info terminal (read mode), the app provides support by displaying, for example, the production status of individual order items. This provides information at all times during production.

The stock area allows goods receipt, material transfer postings, and inventory postings to be completely processed via the app. For example, an overview of all counted items can be displayed and found directly in A+W Cantor.

A+W iShape II

Our second-generation A+W iShape II allows for quicker fabrication, greater functionality, and increased user-friendliness. To start, place A+W’s reference L-angles inside the template’s perimeter. Utilizing the app’s camera feature, the user photographs the template against a contrasting background. The data, including perimeter and radii, are calculated in the cloud with the special L-angles serving as the scaling tool of the template. Users then receive a ‘confidence factor’ regarding the template’s quality and, if acceptable, the user can email the file to A+W CAD Designer, where imperfections (folds, unintended crooked cuts, etc.) can be massaged out with the line tool. Now the shaping/nesting file (dxf) is ready for cutting. If templates are a significant part of your business or even a significant spend of your time, A+W iShape is the solution for you.
